Built for women, our 27-speed Novara Carema has a sport geometry, Shimano Sora drivetrain and a vibration-damping carbon fork that make it ideal for a century as well as club rides and fitness.


  • Aluminum frame features shaped seatstays and top tube for enhanced comfort and performance; tapered head tube improves strength and handling precision
  • Carema geometry is optimized to offer a comfortable, women-specific fit
  • Fork boasts a tapered alloy steerer with a 1-piece alloy crown for strength and stiffness where it counts; carbon legs help damp road vibrations and reduce weight
  • Updated Shimano Sora shifters and derailleurs offer responsive shifts throughout the 27 gears, even when in the drops, enabling you to spin the right gear for the grade
  • Tektro long-reach caliper brakes offer fender clearance and deliver dependable braking power
  • Eyelets for fenders or a rack let you outfit the Carema for wet-weather or commuting performance (fenders or rack sold separately)
  • Replaceable rear derailleur hanger helps extend the usable life of the frame
  • Specs and images are subject to change
